Today after a spontaneous "encounter" with an old friend, he posted this on his Facebook page: (I know, I get it, Facebook is the devil, but in some cases without it, things would never be repaired or mended. And that is a true statement, like it or lump it.)
"Tonight I was reminded that true friends will always still be there when the dust settles. Things may never be the way they once were, but it's comforting to know some people still value friendship through thick and thin. You know who you are. Thanks for helping restore a little faith."
I know who I am.
